Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 323

  1. “Anyone who claims to be a king opposes Caesar” (John 19:12).

The taunts of the crowd have Pilate backed into a corner. How does he rid himself of this troubling situation with Jesus and maintain his position as governor. Of course, failure here doesn’t mean he’s fired. More likely, given the justice of the day, he would be exiled at a minimum. So while saving face is Pilate’s temptation, he’s actually trying to save more than face. But his moment points to a few moments of our own. What does it cost us to deal rightly with Jesus? What does it cost us to act with integrity in our decisions? When it comes to truth, what are we willing to sacrifice in order to protect its vulnerable nature?
